We will be covering most of
Prelims and Final
There will be two evening prelims and one final exam. As the dates near, more information, including the location of the prelims, can be found here.
|Prelim 1 — Thursday, March 8th|
|Prelim 2 — Thursday, April 19th|
|Final Exam — Tuesday, May 15th|
It is the student's responsibility to resolve any prelim or exam conflicts well in advance of the test. In such cases an earlier exam is given on the same day at the department pre-arranged conflict time, 5:00 PM. Conflicts that aren't resolved by this rescheduled time will be considered on a case by case basis. Talk to your TA about conflicting exams.
There will be no make-up prelims given after the original scheduled time.
If you are very ill or have a serious emergency on a the day of a prelim or the final exam, you should contact Kelly Delp (email@example.com) as soon as possible. (You risk getting an 'F' on a prelim (or the exam) if you miss the prelim for any reason and then try to explain later.) In the event that your absence is excused, your final exam grade will be used as a replacement for your prelim score.
Students who miss the final exam due to a verified emergency will be granted an incomplete grade for the course if they have passing level work on their prelims and homework. Make ups for the final are given at the start of the following term.
Your final grade will be based on the midterms, final, and recitation as follows:
Your recitation grade will be based on your homework, quizzes, and attendance and participation in workshops.
Given the number of students in this course, email is often not the best mode of communication. My inbox can get overwhelmed, and sometimes I can miss an important email. Below is a list of common reasons students email me. If your reason for emailing is one of the following, please follow the guidelines given.
- Making an appointment. It's really much easier to make an appointment in person, when we can compare calendars. I'll arrive to class ten minutes early, and will hang around after class as well. If you need to make an appointment with me, please see me before or after class.
- Math questions. The fun part! I love math questions! But, in almost all cases, email is not the best mode of communication for this. Drawing pictures, gesturing, back and forth conversation, are all useful. If you have math questions, try office hours or one of the other available resources.
- Questions about grading. If you have any questions about how something was graded, please get in touch with your TA. If after discussing things with your TA you still have concerns, please see me before or after class to make an appointment.
- Missing class. While attendance is not mandatory, I'll try and highlight in class important ideas. I think you should attend. However, it is likely that once or twice a semester you will catch a cold, have a wedding or family event to attend, a project that needs completing asap, or some other very good reason for missing class. I'll assume if you miss class you have a very good reason; you need not let me know via email.
Students with Disabilities: Your access in this course is important. Please give your TA your Student Disability Services (SDS) accommodation letter early in the semester so that we have adequate time to arrange your approved academic accommodations. If you need an immediate accommodation for equal access, please speak with me after class or send an email message to me and/or SDS at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the need arises for additional accommodations during the semester, please contact SDS.
SDS is located on level 5 of Cornell Health, 110 Ho Plaza, 607-254-4545, sds.cornell.edu.
Academic IntegrityEach student in this course is expected to abide by the Cornell University Code of Academic Integrity. Any work submitted by a student in this course for academic credit will be the student's own work. More information about this code is at http://cuinfo.cornell.edu/aic.cfm.
